Additional information

The ready biodegradability of the registered substance was determined in accordance with the OECD Guideline for Testing of Chemicals 301B. After 28 days the biodegradation of the registered substance was recorded as 76.84% (based on CO2 evolution) and 72.03% (based on DOC). The substance is considered to be readily biodegradable without meeting the 10-day window criteria. In addition, a formulated product containing the registered substance was found to show good potential for ultimate biodegradation, but was not considered to be inherently biodegradable. A formulated product containing the registered substance showed a low potential for biodegradation in seawater, with 28 day degradability rates of 29.6% at 2.5 mg/l and 22.1% at 3.5 mg/l. The test material was considered ultimately biodegradable but not readily biodegradable in seawater.
